Department of Systematic and Evolutionary Botany

Our Vision

The mission of the Department of Systematic and Evolutionary Botany and its associated collections (the New and Old Botanic Gardens, Herbarium, and Library) is to:

  • increase knowledge about plant diversity, the processes and patterns of plant evolution, the relationships between plants and other organisms and aspects of plant conservation.
  • organize this knowledge using information systems that allow efficient retrieval of data about plant diversity held in living and preserved collections
  • disseminate established and cutting-edge knowledge of plants to the scientific community, students at all stages from kindergarten to University, and the general public through lectures, courses, field excursions and exhibitions.
